EMPS #22: Rocks and Stones

Carly said show me some rocks or stones. I chose this indoor rock with a cute saying on it. It resides in the Hallmark Store that allows me to take photographs! :)

Sunday Stills : Potluck

This week I wanted to work on some action shots. Chance is a willing subject, I wish he were a slower subject sometimes it is like trying to photograph a fly.. that is madly buzzing around.

In this one he is smiling and two feet are off of the ground!

This was the best action shot of the bunch I took, it is not perfect, but shows some action!

Check our more of the Potluck photographs at Sunday Stills:)

Round Robin Photo Challenge: Not Of This Season

A Fisherwoman!

I took these photos several years ago when our entire family took a houseboat vacation up on Lake Kabetogama in Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota. They fit the "Not Of This Season" Challenge for me! Check out the other Robins, to see where they want to escape to!

My Grandkids, and part of our group fishing in the background. Chance is on the lookout for minnows, he loved watching them in the water.

Do Dogs need a Fishing License? :)

Sunday Stills: Color

The Sunday Stills assignment was color! I have been ill so I had to go into my archives for this one. I don't like to do that but it was necessary this week. I took this inside the Hallmark store in town shortly before Christmas. They don't mind me fooling around with my camera inside the store. I think they rather enjoy it when I ask if I can take photographs:)

Round Robin Photo Challenge: "Camera Resolutions"

This week the challenge was: Think of three photo themes. Pick one and photograph it. Share the other two theme ideas.

My three theme ideas are: A flowering tree or shrub, a road/street sign and going for a walk. I chose to show going for a walk, and had to go to my archives to pick one picture that made me smile.

One day last spring I enjoyed a walk with my twin great nephews who live next door.

I always enjoy seeing what the other Robins have come up with! Follow along if you like, join us sometime, it is an easy challenge..however your photographic entry should be posted within a twenty four hour period on a specific date:)
